    Not helping with the cause but maybe read up on menstrual cups. Mine holds 2.5 times what a super tampon does so you don't have to change as often as a tampon. Added bonus is a lot of people find that over time their blood loss decreases. I also love that when i stand up I don't get that 'gushing' feeling.

    Would they be willing to complete a hysterectomy at such a young age?
    I would be looking into just a partial one, not have everything removed.

    I am leaning towards maybe getting an uterine ablation done.
    If you cannot tolerate a monophasic OCP, or if you are not keen to do so, then endometrial ablation is certainly an option.

    A few things to consider. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks inherent to the procedure (uterine perforation, infection, haemorrhage). In Australia, these risks are minimal, but important to discuss with your OBGYN. It is generally done under a light GA (general anaesthetic), using a hysteroscope...so it's done under direct vision by the Surgeon, which reduces the risks and complications.

    It may not work. If it does, it may need to be repeated down the track.

    Are you certain you have completed your family? This will be a prerequisite.

    I think it's definitely worth getting a referral from your GP to an OBGYN who performs endometrial ablation. If your periods are that disabling, I think it's well worth discussion with an OBGYN.

    Hope that helps.

    Every time I see this thread pop it it's saying "Misskitty, go and see your OBGYN".
    I'd be very interested to see how you get on @lisaandshaun

    I had oestrogen-sensitive breast cancer last year, so I also had my ovaries removed to reduce my risk of spread and recurrence. So I am now post-menopausal at the age of 41, and have absolutely bugger-all oestrogen...the ONLY good thing about this is the cessation of my periods. Gone forever. The hot flushes, however, are a b@stard!

    Mine are all over the shop because of my kidney failure and transplant and my special, lovely, lovely, lovely pills that keep it in my body. I have my 12 month biopsy next week so after that will get a referral.

    I am one of the lucky ones for whom pregnancy has dramatically improved my AF. Prior to my first I had horribly irregular cycles, crippling cramping and very heavy flow. It had been that way since day dot so I really didn't know any different.

    After DD AF returned when she was about 8 months old (though I was still BF) and all I can remember is that I always had no clue when they were coming because there was barely any cramping. A few twinges at most and I certainly wasn't reaching for the Naprogesic! Flow became a bit better (though still heavy) but cycles became more regular.

    Fast forward to after DS was born and again, AF returned at 8 months despite still BF BUT the last 3 cycles have been bang on 28 days and there is even fewer twinges in those first few days. It is so glorious!!! The most discomfort I get is around ovulation where I get a bit of a tender and sore lower back.

    I am scared to have any more kids in case I undo whatever good has been done to my body lol

    OP I sympathize completely and really hope you can find a solution that will work for you.

    You might call me a hippy from Byron Bay, where people have long ago questioned main****** medicine and cottoned on to what many discount as being mere "quackery". Yes, many of my associates are very high-earning, well-educated people who dare to "play against the rules".

    Well, you can say what you want about me, I'm immune to your labels. This is what I truly believe. Over the course of 15 years I have witnessed many people worldwide benefit greatly from my father's business in alternative health and healing.

    Pharmaceuticals are NOT designed to heal us. They're designed to make money. You can call me what you want, but in time you'll experience the nasty side effects and a little voice may say to you "it was that drug."

    Sorry to be so outspoken. I'm realising my extremist views are not really welcome on this forum. But honestly, it astounds me that so many people are still brainwashed into taking these rubbish drugs, without questioning what they're doing to the body. Look deeper, do some research, if something is out of order - question, question, QUESTION!

    You've studied medicine for ten years or whatever, all I can say is well done for surviving that alone. But come on. Sooner or later everyone will need to wake up. It's not just Dr Mercola that talks "quackery". Look up David Wolf, Daniel Reid, hell, even model Miranda Kerr and her mum are speaking out about it. Is she a "quack" too? She looks pretty healthy to me!

    Just wanted to put it out there, as obviously its your choice in the end what you put into your body. You may take it or leave it.

    I'm not going to come back here to read the mean backlash I'll inevitably receive for speaking out. I honestly have better things to do with my time! Just know that I'm coming from a place of genuine concern and only wish everyone on this planet the best health they can possibly have, free from any pain and unexpected, "domino style" side effects 😌
    OMG. What planet are you on?!
    Just had a friend die last week from brain tumours she had been battling with for 3 years, the natural crap she took for many years (because she believed in the hog wash you do) didn't help her any. Had she not declined the help from qualified medical professionals, had radiotherapy, chemo etc there's a good chance she would still be alive but unfortunately it was too late for her by the time she woke up and realised the natural crap was not helping.
